Liposuction is ideal for patients who want to eliminate areas of fat deposits resistant to exercise and diet. These fat deposits give rise to unwanted body shape and are often described by patients as “stubborn fat.”
Liposuction is ideal for patients who want to improve their body shape and have struggled for some time to change that with diet and exercise. As patients go through different phases of their lives, they find that their body shape is “not what it used to be” and therefore seek liposuction to assist them.
Does Body Sculpting really work?
Yes, body sculpting removes fat cells and reduces the appearance of fat on targeted areas of the body. Whether using heat, cooling, or ultrasound, body sculpting treatments kill fat cells that are then excreted over the next couple of months, which is when you’ll see full results.
Body sculpting kills or shrinks the fat cells in the targeted areas. The cells that are killed are gone forever and won’t grow back. It is still possible to see fat in those areas again, like if you gain weight through an unhealthy diet or lack of exercise. The fat cells still present in that area, the shrunk cells, will expand in size, even though those fat cells that were killed won’t return.
Approved by the FDA
Low-level laser therapy emits cold laser energy into body tissues absorbed by fat cells, broken down and absorbed into the body. The FDA has approved the procedure.
Radiofrequency delivers controlled energy to excess fat areas, creating heat deep within fat cells and destroying them. Radiofrequency therapy for excess fat removal has not yet been approved by the FDA but is regularly used for body contouring in dermatology.
